The Wisconsin Badgers Need OT To Beat Iona, 60-58

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst INovember 22, 2008

Could the Wisconsin Badgers basketball team end up having a similar season to their football counterparts? As in, be ranked to start the year, then barely slip past bad teams, then just get embarrassed all season long?

I don't think that will happen to Bo Ryan's squad, but it didn't look good on Friday night.

I say this despite the fact the Badgers actually won their opening game in the Paradise Jam, knocking off Iona 60-58. That's probably to close of a score to be too excited about, and the Badgers needed overtime to do it. The Badgers never trailed in the extra session, but Iona nearly won the game in regulation, as they had two shots bounce off the rim in the final 15 seconds.

Nevertheless, the Badgers got the win, and will face San Diego tonight at 7:30. The game is not televised, but you can probably find it online somewhere.
